Not sure what to say?

Michele, Jason and Jocelyn,
I lived next door to all of you on Frisco Drive. I've been meaning to write a note for several weeks now. I truly wish I could have been at Mike's visitation and funeral. Like so many have written in the guestbook, Mike was a very special person to a lot of folks including me. I can still remember mowing that large yard next to the railroad tracks for your dad once in a while. He was always so generous when he paid me and I can still remember him telling...

Mike and I were good friends through my parents; Gus & Ruth Marquardt '...Many happy and fun evenings were spent around a player piano. Our thoughts are with your family. Sandra Arebalo, The Villages, Florida

It was always refreshing having a conversation with Mike and catching up with his family and "sports" of course. Having been one of his neighbors for many years and watching how many youngsters hung out around his house, you always knew how much the kids loved and admired Mike.
Pat and I regret being out of town on his passing, but extend our deepest sympathies to his family!

I went to Washington Elementary and I remember Mr. Wiley well. He was such a good teacher..everyone loved him. He will be missed...as a matter of fact, as I went by Washington Elementary the other day I was thinking about him and some other teachers that I remember from grade school and I was wondering if he still was living in this area. Rest in peace.

It was a honor to know such a person. He had a way to make you feel like a special person. His ability to work with youth was just out of this world . He always had a smile on his face, and greeted you with a hand shake. Few people come along with his ability to make you a better person, God Bless you friend . Re Farmer

I had the privilege to know Coach Wiley, he ran a baseball school for the youth, which one of my son attended, he always paid attention to every youth in his program and made them feel special . He was always a postive person, when ever you met him he had a smile on his face and a strong hand shake . This type of person come along once in a while, he was a GEM , and will be missed.

Coach Wiley was an outstanding mentor, teacher, and gentleman. Our three sons were blessed to have experienced Mike's guidance and compassion. He will be missed. Our sincere sympathies.

Mike Wiley was a wonderful man who cared so deeply about his work and the students he taught and coached. He knew my father, George Monty, and my oldest son, Dan Quartell, who competed against his son, Jason, in sports. I always seemed to run into Mike at HyVee and we would have wonderful conversations catching up on everyone. He will be so missed...he was so loved. May you rest in peace Mike.

In Honor of an Amazing Man,
The four Olsen kids are forever indebted to Mr.Wiley. Terry was the first to have him at Washington School in 1961, the first year of his teaching legacy. Dad (Sam)coached little league with him and Mom (Edith) held the position of PTA president and worked with him. There were two men growing up in those young years we did not want to disappoint by our "effort". The first being our Dad; the second was Mr. Wiley (plus don't end up in Mr.McCue's...
